Historical Background

Mewat is a distinct socio-cultural and ethnological region named after its predominant inhabitant's viz. the Meos. They claim to be 'Rajputs' originally, and trace their descent to the Aryans, who invaded India. They call themselves 'chhatris'. They also make the proud claim of being one of the rare segments of the invading population that has not lost its original ethnic purity, unlike many other Rajputs. It is believed that they embraced the Islam religion during the reign of Tuglak I during the 14th century. A large number of Meos live in other Indian states also, like Madhya Pradesh.
